If you are looking for a modern family home with far reaching countryside views in a popular Devon village with a good range of local amenities, then look no further!

The surrounding area offers great opportunities for outdoor pursuits with some picturesque walks in the area including the nearby Tottiford, Trenchford and Kennick Reservoirs, the upper Teign Valley to Fingle Bridge, and of course the walks, pubs and Tors of Dartmoor are only a short drive away. There are several golf clubs in the area including Teign Valley Golf Club. Haldon Forest provides miles of walking and cycling trails, and Devon coast and beaches not far away.

The village primary school is well supported and has a ‘Good’ Ofsted rating. Secondary schools are located in Kingsteignton and independent schools in Exeter, Teignmouth and Stover. Grammar schools can be found in Torquay.

Exeter also has an airport flying to national and international destinations.

Description

Having been constructed in 2011 this modern family home is now only 13 years old and is very well presented throughout. Being of a more recent build it is more energy efficient than similar sized older properties. The house is traditionally constructed with attractive rendered and wood clad elevations under a pitched slate roof with wooden double glazed window and doors. The rooms to the front of the house take in the far reaching rural views which stretch across the Teign Valley to Haldon Forest with Haldon Belvedere (Lawrence Castle) clearly visible on the horizon.

Accommodation extends to 125sqm/1345 sqft over two levels and in brief includes 4 double bedrooms, 3 of which are particularly generous. The main bedroom has an en suite shower room with a family bathroom to serve the remaining bedrooms. On the ground floor is a good sized hallway, kitchen/breakfast room, large sitting/dining room and a cloakroom/WC.

Outside the property is well spaced back from the road by the front garden and drive with space for 3 cars which leads to the single garage. The back garden has a sunny south-westerly orientation, is level and of a good size without being a chore to maintain.

Accommodation

A paved path leads from the brick paved driveway to an open porch. A solid wood front door opens to the spacious hallway which in turn leads to the main reception rooms. Off the hallway is a well-appointed cloakroom/WC as well as a large and useful storage cupboard, plus an under-stair cupboard.

The kitchen/breakfast room has a comprehensive range of wood effect wall and floor mounted units with brushed stainless handles to three walls and granite effect work surfaces with tiled splashbacks with an inset stainless steel sink and drainer set below the window taking in the wonderful outlook. Equipment includes an inset gas hob with an extractor over, eye level electric double oven and grill, integrated fridge/freezer and integrated dishwasher. There is space for a freestanding washing machine although the sellers have the door and associated parts to refit an integrated washing machine if desired. The remainder of the room has space for a breakfast or dining table depending on how you wish to organise the house. The sitting/dining room is a light and spacious room with a large window and glazed doors overlooking and opening to a paved terrace and back garden. There is plenty of space for sitting and dining furniture.

On the first floor off the landing are the four double bedrooms and family bathroom plus a useful storage cupboard. Three of the bedrooms are of particularly generous proportions. The main bedroom has a view over the garden, plenty of space for freestanding furniture, and benefits from a fully tiled en suite shower room with heated towel rail. Bedroom two takes in the wonderful panoramic views across the Teign Valley to Haldon, with Haldon Belvedere standing out like a beacon on the horizon when the sun reflects off it. Bedroom three has a dual aspect to the front and rear through the dormer windows making a great child’s room with space for a play area. Again, this room takes in the aforementioned views to the front. Bedroom four will take a double bed but is perhaps more likely to be used as a study or nursery, and overlooks the garden. The family bathroom is fully tiled with a bath over the shower and a heated towel rail. There is plenty of storage space in the loft which is accessed via a hatch with loft ladder on the landing and is boarded. The boiler is located in the loft.

Outside

The front of the property is spaced well back from the road by the lawned front garden and brick paved driveway providing parking for 3 cars. The drive leads to the single garage with light and power. There is a large built in L-shape wooden work bench and a door gives access to the back garden. There is en electric car charging point fitted by the garage door. At the front the plots are divided by attractive beech hedging. The rear garden is level and of a good size without being a burden to maintain. Immediately off the rear of the house is a paved terrace providing plenty of space for garden furniture and alfresco dining. There are steps up to a bank to the rear retained by timber posts which is a haven for wildlife and planted with a variety of flowers, shrubs and trees. On the right side of the garden are a couple of productive raised planters providing strawberries and raspberries among other things. Next to which is a deck and summer house. The garden has a south-westerly orientation making the most of the sun on brighter days. Wooden closeboard fencing borders either side of the garden.
